Protein brings the power to your healthy diet. It is the source of energy you need to fuel busy days and it fills you up, so you feel satisfied for hours after you eat. Protein is also more thermogenic than carbohydrates and fats (meaning it requires more energy for digesting and absorbing). This means that you’ll burn more calories eating a high-protein food compared to something higher in carbs and fat.

Lucky for you, the Nutrisystem menu offers a tempting variety of high-protein dinners. To help you find your new favorite meal, we put together a list of 15 delicious, protein-packed Nutrisystem dinners that come with over 15 grams of the good stuff!
